The high-quality racing action at Royal Ascot continues on Wednesday, with the Prince of Wales’s Stakes proving to be the feature on the card. This race will be run over a mile and two furlongs, and there will be some huge stars of the turf involved.

Before Betting On Prince of Wales’s Stakes

The Prince of Wales’s Stakes is the feature on the card at Royal Ascot on Wednesday. Horses aged four and older will be eligible to compete in the race over a mile and two furlongs, which has been staged annually since 1962. It is one of the richest races at Royal Ascot, with connections competing for their share of the £1 million purse.

This race is usually won by horses of the highest quality, and that is highlighted by the talent of the runner involved this year. Auguste Rodin was the Epsom Derby winner in 2023, before later claiming victories in the Irish Champion Stakes and the Breeders’ Cup Turf. However, a response will be needed from the Aidan O’Brien runner after two sub-par performances already this calendar year.

White Birch was behind Auguste Rodin in the Derby last year, but he has progressed well as an older horse this year. He has won three from three in 2024 for trainer John Murphy, which included a success over the O’Brien runner by three lengths in the G1 Tattersalls Gold Cup last month.

The French bring a strong hand to Royal Ascot this year, but their leading chance could come in the form of Blue Rose Cen. The filly was beaten in Grade One company on her return to the track last month, but the step back up to a mile and two once again makes her a leading player after winning two French Grade Ones over the distance in 2023.

Patience if waning thin when it comes to Auguste Rodin. Therefore, the preference is for White Birch to once again showcase his talent over this distance and secure the form ahead of last year’s Derby winner. Royal Rhyme could be an interesting outsider for the Karl Burke team.
